"Sqealing" noise when drum rotating
Disconnected power supply, removed front panel, removed tub support bracket, removed electrical lines from light and door switch( to have better access to install front guide kit), removed belt, removed drum, removed old rollers, installed new rollers and rest of installation was in reverse order of taking machine apart. In order to install the front guide kit(which I've never done before), I had to watch the installation instructions via you-tube. This was a tremendous aide as the instructions were simple and very adequate.

The belt was broken
Using repair video , I unplugged dryer, removed front panel (after learning how to use a socket wrench) then suffered through. 2 days (off and on ) of replacing the belt, then I lost the clips from top panel, found them and finally got them back on. When the dryer was finally ressembled, it worked properly! I am 63 years old, a grandmother and have been ill for years, therefore doing this repair was a victory for me. The product was definitely the correct one. I will order again soon as I have a leaky washing machine. Years ago, I would never have tried to repair an appliance on my own. Thank you

Noisy Drum while drying.
Replaced the wheels at the back and also the belt. ( I also removed the lint buildup around the drum felt and on the heating chamber and motor. That alone helped the noise problem. I did this prior to ordering parts, as I had taken it apart to see what the problem might be.)I don't have any additions to what I saw in the repair video. That video showed me all I needed to do. Great video. First time the dryer has been worked on since it was purchased in about 1984. We were a family of 6, so its good stuff.

Repair video is excellent and a major factor is choosing this supplier. The only thing I did differently was thread belt around tensioner wheel through rear inspection port. This is not a difficult job and seeing the entire procedure in a detailed video is like having experience.

Old tumbler belt broke.
As per instructions received with the replacement belt: Removed front panel by unscrewing two screws, removed tumbler front (two screws each side), placed new belt on tumbler where the old belt had been, removed plate to access motor pulley and idler pulley and installed new belt according to diagram provided with instructions. Had trouble getting the two retaining clips at top of from panel back in place. Dryer is functioning very well now.

Dryer took 4 hours to dry a normal load of laundry.
The gas heater would come on for 13 sec. and then go off for a few minutes. The most common cause for this problem was cited as the cycling thermostat. My local parts place did not have this part, and they told me they thought the high limit thermostat was the problem. I bought one and it did not help. I bought a cycling thermostat from this site because all the fiche diagrams I could find anywhere said that my dryer had one at the back. I took my dryer completely apart (my dryer does not have a removable back) to find that it does not have a cycling thermostat anywhere. I bought the only other possible bad part and replaced the multi- temperature gas thermostat. Dryer works great now, it dries a whole load of laundry in slightly more time than my old washer takes to wash a load. With the dryer apart, I took the opportunity to replace the ancient belt. The whole job was difficult because I didn't need to take the dryer apart. If I could have found a fiche for my exact dryer and known that it did not have a cycling thermo, it would have been an easy job.

broken dryer belt.
I followed the instructions on each part that was sent to me. I've taken the front and tumbler assembly off before, so that was already easy. The tip that is not offered that makes a huge difference in replacing the belt is this. Make sure that you take the belt out if the bag and let it rest for a few minutes before installing. Also, make sure that you have the ribbed side of the belt facing up on the tumbler. It is easier to get it right while the tumbler is out of the unit than when it's inside and you are working in a 1 foot section.
